Keep Your Family Safe with First Alert

Number One Priority As Parents Is To Keep The Family Safe

Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. Don’t let the beep steal your sleep.

  Becoming a parent can be something super scary because we all know that we are no longer just worried about ourselves but we are now in charge of the safety of our kids. So as parents we are constantly looking after our family safety. What kind of precautions should we as parents be taking in our household to ensure the safety of our family?

  Everyone always thinks about smoke alarms, but let's not forget about Carbon Monoxide detectors which can be even deadlier. Reasons being that Carbon Monoxide is an invisible, odorless and colorless deadly gas that can be produced by any fuel burning device. Did you know that Carbon Monoxide is the number one cause of accidental deaths in the United States. Carbon Monoxide is also known as the silent killer and is responsible for an average of 450 deaths and more than 20,000 emergency room visits each year. So by having our First Alert System in our home as parents we feel confident being safe in and will sleep well. Just because you have secured your home to alert you from carbon monoxide, your not done there. Get your family together and make an escape plan incase of an alarm.

  Where are the best places to have First Alert in your Home? They should be properly placed in every level and every bedroom in your household. Have a checklist in hand while checking to see if you have them in each room.

First Alert has been keeping families safe since 1958 and it makes us feel safe at night and even when we are away from home. As parents we feel like we are doing our job of keeping our family safe and away from any harm. But have you had a family meeting and talked about what Carbon Monoxide is with your kids ? If not then sit down and talk about it with them. The more they know about what can potentially happen and them feeling like they are ready for anything is always a great feeling as a parent. I sat my kids down and actually explained to them how the alarm would sound. And they shouldn't panic as we would be there to help out and be able to keep them safe. I showed them where we would be exiting incase anything does happen. Being prepared as a family is our number one goal.
